Mathews confident on good show by Lankans

Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews is confident his side can impress during the upcoming Champions Trophy tournament in the United Kingdom. Sri Lankan players taking part in the latest edition of the 20-overs per side Indian Premier League tournament have largely struggled for form, with Mathews himself even giving up the captaincy of Pune Warriors.

Sri Lanka, however, have impressed in recent world limited overs tournaments, reaching four of the last six finals, including the 2009 World Twenty20, the last major global cricket event in England, where they were beaten in a Lord’s final by Pakistan.

“It’s not even a concern when it comes to a tournament like this because they’ve been here, they’ve done it, and I have the confidence in them,” Mathews said on Tuesday, where Sri Lanka will play three practice matches against Pakistan, India and the West Indies at Edgbaston.
